Swarm Book Launch
Celebrate the publication of Swarm, the highly anticipated sequel in the action-packed Zeroes series, with authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti!
To be launched by Melina Marchetta, bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi.
It’s the holiday season, but the celebration at the Zeroes’ underground nightclub is blown apart when two strangers with new powers take to the dance floor. The Zeroes pursue them, only to discover that they’re fleeing an even more sinister power-wielder, Swarm. The Zeroes must learn all they can about this dangerous new player if they are to stay safe.
Every power has a dark side. Keep the secret. Use your power for good. Keep out of trouble. Stick together. Or things will fall apart…
6pm arrivals for a 6.30pm start.
